Many believe the New York Jets are not going to try very hard to win games this season with the hopes of landing the top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and with it a franchise quarterback. The team traded or cut most of their best players in a preseason purge that fans think supports that theory. The Jets looked awful in a season-opening loss in Buffalo last week and head to Oakland this Sunday to face the Raiders, who many consider Super Bowl contenders.
Cast a vote in our second Game of the Week poll! (Staten Island Advance)After much success and fanfare with the initial Game of the Week poll, we are happy to present a second one. Unlike our HS football polls, we take it a step further with this new feature and pit games from various sports against one another. Last week, we pitted soccer games against tennis matches, and soccer won in a big way. This time we will throw another sport -- girls' volleyball -- into the mix.
SILive.com and the Advance will be at tonight's New Dorp-Tottenville girls' soccer game at 7. The game was the winning tilt in our weekly Game of the Week poll, which concluded Tuesday. We will blitz the game with a handful of reporters and a photographer. If you can't make it out to the game, you can find out all you need to know right here. Click on the comments section for in-game updates and see below for some colorful stuff.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
